Video Details for Video: Howl by Allen Ginsberg (Part 2 - censored)

Posted By MsJacquiiC on Sep 11, 2012 at 7:22 AM

Allen Ginsberg's epic poem Howl animated by Mark Mentzer.

Irwin Allen Ginsberg (1926-1997) was an American poet and cherished Member of the San Francisco Renaissance. He would later be associated with the Beat Generation in a broader sense; His poetics did center around attacking what he saw as the destructive forces of materialism and conformity in the United States at the time.

Words from animator Mark Mentzer: "Like in 1955 Howl is too much. YouTube censored [this video in its original form]. I took out the homosexual and straight sex. I hope they don't take this down. This is Part 2 of Allen Ginsberg's epic poem..."

Note from JPiC Administrator: "We will be posting the original video in its entirely in our forums. Do a search for "Allen Ginsberg" and/or "Howl" and you'll find it!" ;)

    Don't tell anyone - but I've yet to read Howl in its entirety ((blush)) One day I'll get to it though...maybe....But I do procrastinate LOL. I do think Ginsberg is so perfectly abstract that his work would fit into ANY time. This is the great thing about fabulous poets, their words are always relevant! And Ginsberg is an EXCEPTIONALLY fabulous poet!

    ...who cooked rotten animals lung heart feet tail borsht & tortillas dreaming
    of the pure vegetable kingdom,...

    So appropriate for the times. Heard about vegans for the first time when hippies thought it should be so for all others. Times have changed somewhat but some remain the same. The young believe those older than them have no idea what's really going on until it happens to them (growing old, lol). Then they take the places of them that went before them...
    I might finish reading the full version though it's daunting in its length, lmao.
    Thanks for posting this, Sis!
